Dance Moms Season 6 returns with an all-new episode this Tuesday, May 3, with “One Last Dance.” According to the official synopsis and latest spoilers for the Lifetime series, episode 18 will focus on Maddie and Mackenzie Ziegler’s last performance for ALDC.
Abby Lee Miller is clearly unhappy with the Zieglers leaving Dance Moms. As seen in the promo video for this week’s episode, the ALDC coach got upset when Maddie said that no one will be able to replace her and Mackenzie in the team.
“So you think we should all throw in the towel because you’re throwing in the towel?” she asked Maddie.
It seems like Miller is trying to put all her attention on the minis to get her mind off the Zieglers leaving the show and her team. In a clip, Nia Frazier’s mom, Holly, pointed out that the ALDC coach should have arranged a little something for her teammates, especially after all that Maddie and Mackenzie have done for Dance Moms.
Holly pointed out that Maddie has been competing for Abby’s attention with the minis all week long. Given that she only had a couple of days left in Dance Moms Season 6, the reality star claimed that Abby should have given Maddie her undivided attention. She said that Abby had been distracted with the minis since they arrived.
“I understand that she’s running a business, she’s producing a new legacy. But my focus will be sending proper goodbyes, farewell to my teammates.”
Some moms of the mini team were quite offended with Holly’s statement. While they were also unhappy about Maddie and Mackenzie leaving the team, they thought some of the elites were being unfair by taking it out all on them.
“I feel like the elite moms are trying to ruin the day because they don’t want us here and they’re old news. They just need to go away.”
Near the end of the dramatic promo for Dance Moms Season 6 episode 18, Maddie and Mackenzie’s mom, Melissa Gisoni, was seen shouting at the minis. It seems like, at one point, she also got fed up with the moms who were hogging all of Abby’s attention.
“Guess what your kids will be nothing,” she yelled.
Meanwhile, in a separate clip, Holly Frazier, Jessalyn Siwa, Jill Vertes, Kira Girard and Melissa Gisoni were seen going out to lunch to talk about the future of Dance Moms without Maddie and Mackenzie Ziegler. Melissa explained that they decided against inviting Brynn Rumfallo’s mom, Ashlee Allen, since they did not like each other anyway.
What was supposed to be a mini send-off for Melissa turned into another gabfest, as they talked about why they hated Ashley. Holly and Jill speculated that Ashley will stick around long enough on Dance Moms and become the “queen of the minis.”
“She can’t be queen here because she doesn’t fit in and she doesn’t like us and we don’t like her and she can’t be Maddie. She tried, she can’t,” Jill said.
“Brynn’s never going to be Maddie, never,” Melissa then told the cameras.
Holly, on the other hand, started to get emotional talking about Maddie and Mackenzie’s final performance with ALDC. While Abby has been busy building up the minis, possibly to replace the Zieglers, she pointed out that the team and Dance Moms will never be the same again.
“Abby might be trying to replace them with Brynn and the minis but we all know that they’re one-of-a-kind.”
